THE IRON INDUSTRY.
steel made in both the United States and Great Britain, and Table XXII-D the percentage of each product.
In 1867 the production of Bessemer steel in the United States was 2679 tons. Some small quantities were made before this, but the industry was put on a permanent footing by the establishment of an entirely new Bessemer plant at Steelton, Pa., a plant which has continued to make steel from then until now. This was followed in the same year by Troy, while Cambria, at Johnstown, was the next to enter the field. From 1867 to 1871 about 20,000 tons
